Mathematics Teacher Support Package. Helping Students Work towards the Certificate of Initial Mastery and Benchmark Expectations.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Office of Assessment and Evaluation, Salem.
This teacher support packet is based on Oregon's Academic Content Standards and Performance Standards which require higher skills of Oregon students at all grade levels. Under these standards, in order to receive a Certificate of Initial Mastery and at benchmark grade levels, students need to achieve a specific score on the statewide assessment and produce classroom work samples which exemplify this high standard. This teacher support package is intended to provide a clear description of: (1) performance standards in mathematics for each benchmark and the Certificate of Initial Mastery level; (2) examples of problems from the state multiple choice mathematics test which are at the level required by the performance standards; (3) examples of problems from each strand of the content standards which have typically been difficult for students; and (4) examples of open-ended mathematics tasks, student solutions, and the scoring guide used for these and for classroom work samples. The specific number, type, and the minimum scores required on classroom assignments are also included. (DDR)
